What a fantastic walk out to water. It was beautiful views from both sides. Excellent for picture taking. Take a book, sit and relax...very worth the steps

We walked along the main beach, and headed over to the lookout. Very good views of the town and the beach, as well as a nice view out to see.

I walked from the city and thought several times that I was off course. In the end, I did arrive. This is not a handicap accessible walk. For that you should drive to the aquarium and walk from there. It is an amazing spot to...More

In common with much of the coastline around Biarritz, the sea view from this rock, accessed by an iron bridge, is breathtaking. The rock formations around it are amazing too. A must see...

Any religious, historical or scenic appreciation from this cliff was immediately lost due to the throng of people. Avoid the packed in feeling and choose any point along Biarritz’s waterfront walkway to enjoy the beauty of the region.

We walked from here round to the lighthouse - there are great views of Biarritz from the rocks and the route takes in the old port and the Casino

Walked along to take a look while on holiday. A very striking and prominent feature on the coastline. A nice part to walk out on to see the views.

Don't miss while you're in Biarritz. Spectacular view rock in the sea linked by a bridge. Very nice great to watch the sunset

Nice leisurely walk. Great views out to the sea and back into Biarritz. Just keep following the path for spectacular views.

I only visited this because a big religious statue over looking great sea seems like something you should do. The walk isn't very big and the sea is lovely. I probably won't visit again but you should do it if you are in the area
